Synopsis: A firefighter named Bucky dies in a mill fire and three others are injured, including Andi Comstock’s brother. After Bucky is cremated, he enlists Andi’s help to find the arsonist, contributing fire-related clues he gathers in the Netherworld. Andi has helped the Smokies before, but this time, things are different. This time she encounters other supernatural elements at play…elements she’s not sure how to defeat, which could mean Andi will be talking to the Smokies in their world instead of hers.
